DJ Zaz Brown – Mingle Music for Sophistos

I’d like to sincerely apologize to you all who tuned into my shows before. I did not realize that most of the tracks were recorded to Mono, robbing you of a good experience.

Now that I’ve gotten the technical mishaps out of the way, I went straight analog to give you all something jazzy to sip dark brown stuff too. Crush velvet jackets are optional but highly advised.

Got some heavy hitting artists doing their thing, providing a soundtrack for you to feel mackish to. Most of this is vinyl so I left in the snaps and pops for nostalgia. That’s how it should be unless you got it like that. I through one single from Smoke City in the mix off the digital (promo copy) but that was it. Outro was an amazing last minute find…part two is coming. It’s getting cold out so might as well give ya’ll something smooth to entertain other sophistos with.

Stay Tuned…

Track list:
Lalo Schifrin – Fortune Tellers
Dr. Buzzard/Original Savanna Band – Soraya/March of the Nignes
Billy Cobham – Bolinas
Roy Ayers – Don’t you Say No
Herb Alpert – The Factory
Herbie Hancock – Trust Me
Anita Baker – Mystery
Lonnie Liston Smith – Visions Of a World (Phases I & II)
Maynard Ferguson – The Cheshire Cat
Smoke City – Numbers
Ronnie Laws – Segue (from Solid Ground album)

Us & Us: “Self-evident…”
A Motion Mixtape for Phuture Frequency
Transmitting from Mount Vernon, New York, USA
Supplying musical therapy by way of vinyl, CD, cassette, and MP3

“To be Black and conscious in America is to be in a constant state of rage.” – James Baldwin

This mix was inspired by a number of things, but primarily the murder of Trayvon Martin, the not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial, and the increased need for self-love in the weeks and months that followed. Other factors include the spirit of resistance, rebellion, and reflection during Black August as well as an Afrofuturism mix that King Britt put together a few months back which has taken up permanent residence within my MP3 player. Beyond that, as a music lover and a selector, sometimes you wonder what might happen if certain cuts got together and had an exchange, which pretty much describes Us & Us as a whole.

The piece featuring Dr. John is a Charles Mingus cover from a wonderful collection entitled *Weird Nightmare: Meditations On Mingus.* It came out in 1992 and was my introduction to Mingus’s work. If there’s anything that I’m thankful for in 2013, it’s learning about the cosmic blues of my new favorite artist, Lonnie Holley. I’ve been wanting to play the Menagerie cut for a while and I had to represent for the Donky Pitch label, particularly The Range, who can do no wrong in my eyes right now.

Always a blessing to come through and play some tunes for y’all. Hope you enjoy…

Supplying musical therapy by way of vinyl, CD, cassette, and MP3.

It never fails: I always end up spending more time with my vinyl once Record Store Day comes and goes. This all-vinyl mix includes some old favorites as well as new additions to the collection. The inclusion of Portishead was unexpectedly timely given their recent Glastonbury performance. I finally get a chance to represent for one of my favorite Talking Heads album cuts, plus the Theo Parrish/Tony Allen collaboration is a current favorite with me right now. In light of the recent passing of soul singer Darondo, I included Tall Black Guy’s re-edit of one of his songs. And Dilla’s shown some love through a Raymond Scott sample origin and a remix of “Waves” from the Donuts album. Not sure who was behind that, but respect is due: it’s b eautiful.

A lot going on in this one. Getting my free jazz on here and there with the likes of Don Cherry and RareBit, then moving more to the head nod side of things with Visioneers and

Shigeto. A little hip-hop, some soundtrack pieces, experimental cuts, as well as some next level instrumental science from the likes of Beat Inc., Keyboard Kid, and The Range.

Organized Konfusion checks in with DJ Spooky, a personal favorite from DJ Krush featuring C.L. Smooth, and Oddisee messes around with a Metronomy joint. Beyond that,

Damon Albarn, Tony Allen, and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers team up as Rocket Juice & The Moon for a quick afrobeat interlude.

All that and a lot more. Just a little something to chill out to. Hope you enjoy it…

Us & Us: “The Sensitive Adventures Of Ebb And Flow…”
A Motion Podcast Episode for September 2011
Transmitting from Mount Vernon, New York, USA
Supplying musical therapy by way of vinyl, CD, cassette, and MP3

I’ve been wanting to say something. Prior to the two episodes from me that popped up out of nowhere last year, I was absent for a year and some change, so I feel like I ought to

actually say something. At the same time, the music speak volumes on its own and is far more eloquent than I am.

Acts like Jonti, Sepalcure, Toro Y Moi, and When Saints Go Machine represent the current obsessions while the music of Arthur Russell remains a constant inspiration. Arthur’s

Landing represents lovely for Russell’s compositions. There’s some beat science from Andres and Sir Froderick as well as Bullion, who had a remix project marrying the work of

The Beach Boys with J Dilla’s b eats. Ultramarine put out their first new material in over thirteen years, which thrills me to death. And there are pieces from Phil Upchurch and Bill

Cosby that resonate strongly with me as of late. The glitchy sensitivity of Claro Intelecto and Auch, the wide-eyed fun of Saint Etienne remixing Pizzicato Five, the album cuts from

Funkadelic and The Crusaders that I’ve been wanting to play for you for months now…this is just me doing what I do. Grabbing some selections from the collection and trying to

connect some dots.

Thank you very much for joining me. Hope you enjoy the set…

On this episode, I had to dedicate some space to the words and music of the late Gil Scott-Heron. In addition, a Johnny Hammond cut is included to big up the production genius of the late Alphonzo “Fonce” Mizell, one-half of the Mizell brothers. Other than that, some past, present, and future side room flavors along with some pieces I’ve long since forgotten about and deserve to get some shine. Check the free verse from Antipop Consortium’s High Priest guest starring on the Diego Cortez track. New releases include some beat science from Lee Bannon and Katalyst, the Billie Holiday meets Bjork beauty of Amenta, and an ecstatic piece from Matthew Herbert’s latest album (the one that got PETA really, really upset). And if the thou ght of Sly Stone being homeless and living out of a van depresses you as much as it does me, perhaps you’ll appreciate my reaching back for the closer on his *Life* album with The Family Stone.

It’s been almost a year since I last did a show for PFRadio, which is entirely too long to be away. A laundry list of talented people within the world of music have left this earth during my absence, so I figured I’d pay my respects a few at a time. For this show, eternal gratitude goes to Harry Whitaker, Eugene McDaniels, and Frank Foster. Other than that, just grabbing a few selections from the library and seeing what works. Strangely enough, I recorded this prior to the execution of Troy Davis in Georgia. The inclusion of Frank Foster’s “The Loud Minority” seems all too timely right about now.

This set goes out to anyone and everyone who has ever felt like music was all they had. Hope you enjoy this one…

Us & Us – Episode 15

With as many artists as we lost in 2009, the idea of living tributes became more of a necessity. Appreciating someone’s talent while they still walk the earth is always a good thing and I think that Shawn Lee is certainly worthy of such recognition. Constantly busy, insanely prolific, and absolutely unstoppable, Mr. Lee is one of the coolest soul men on the planet. This episode takes time out to celebrate his work…

1. Shawn Lee – Disappearance Of The Man [We Love You/Wall Of Sound]
2. Shawn Lee – Fade Up (feat. The Superimposers) [Ubiquity]
3. Shawn Lee’s Ping Pong Orchestra – Mystery Train [Ubiquity]

6. Lord Newborn & The Magic Skulls – That’s Right (It’s Time To Get Down) [Ubiquity]

8. Bei Bei And Shawn Lee – Hot Thursday [Ubiquity]
9. Shawn Lee – Whatever Side You’re On (feat. Paul Butler) [Ubiquity]
10. Shawn Lee & Clutchy Hopkins – Ancient Chinese Secret [Ubiquity]
11. Shawn Lee – Some People [Grand Sche me]

14. Mocky – Birds Of A Fe ather (Radio Edit and Remix feat. GZA) [Crammed Discs]
15. Mor Thiam – Ayo Ayo Nene [Now-Again]

For this month, it’s just another collection of new and old tunes I wanted to hear together. New Planet Mu material from Starkey

gets paired up with older Mu works from Capitol K and Trus’Me turns in some remix magic for LCD Soundsystem. Ultramarine’s *Every

Man And Woman Is A Star* is a desert island disc for me, hands down. “Lights In My Brain” remains a favorite from that album.

from that album. Can’t believe that the Innerzone Orchestra cut from 1999, nor can I believe that “Do The Astral Plane” almost

didn’t make the *Cosmogramma* album (Flying Lotus said so via his Twitter stream). And has it really been almost a year since

Domu announced his retirement from music? I’m still in denial about that, by the way.

Even if life has gotten you to the point that you’re physically exhau sted, hopefully there’s some song within this set that will

cause your soul and spirit to get down with the get down. Dancing in the listening room is not only permitted, but encouraged…

Back for 2010, I take a little time to pay respect to the living
legacies of Guru, Malcolm McLaren, and Steve Reid. “Lauretta”
wouldn’t get out of my head after McLaren died and I’m not sure how
many people would even reference his Fans EP, seeing as how it’s this
weird combination of R&B with operatic arias. Outside of that, just
playing some releases from this year and last year that have captured
my interest, bringing along some cuts from previous years to tie
together the loose ends.

Back on my listening room/side room selections thing again. Been way
from it too long. It feels good to be back. Hope this one finds you
in a good place…
